Now Is the Time To Get Unstuck

53Are you stuck; unable to move forward in any or all areas of your life?  Do you feel weary; your feet heavy as if you are wearing concrete shoes?  You walk 100 miles and yet you are still standing where you started.  If so, it is time to get unstuck; to take control of your life and your own happiness!

Getting unstuck is easier than you think.  Don’t let fear hold you back, for there is nothing to fear.  All you have to do is accept things as they are.  In other words, stop fighting against that which you do not want.  The more you fight against it, the more of it you are going to get.  Acceptance does not mean staying where you are; it simple means to go with the flow; to be “fluid” in your life while you do what you need to do to get to where you want.

When things are not working for us we try to make them better one way or another.  When that effort fails we may take a step or two backward, giving up a little hope, but once our motivation returns, we try again.  The problem is, is that we try the same thing over and over again expecting different results.  We think if we do it “better” this time it will work, but to no avail.  Our lives end up feeling like a Merry-Go-Round.  We are excited about the ride yet we keep going in circles.  Eventually the excitement dies and before you know it five, ten or twenty years have passed and you are no closer to your dreams or being truly happy.

Albert Einstein once said “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Einstein – His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson

So, how insane are you?  Isn’t it time to jump off the Merry-Go-Round and get on a new ride?  Isn’t it time to take a leap of faith into the unfamiliar or the unknown?  In reality, when you sit down and really think about it, what is there to be afraid of?  If you need to make some changes to what you are doing or not doing, then make them.  If it is your thought patterns holding you back, then start thinking more positive thoughts and focusing your attention on what you do want even if it is not in your life experience yet.  Once your focus is turned to what you do want – it will show up; it has no choice! 

61You are the only one who knows what is holding you back and for those of you who want to blame someone else; the only person to blame is yourself.  You are the only one who can get yourself unstuck.  Are you ready to take the first step?  If so, then stop those things that you are doing that are making you stuck.  Release yourself from all resistance; surrender with joy and anticipation of what is to come!  And remember….you are the one who creates your reality, so what is it going to be?

Love & Light,

Cindy

Life’s Little Hiccups

48From time to time, life will hand you some unexpected hiccups.  More than likely it will be something unplanned or unwanted.  Instead of allowing this little hiccup to get in the way of your happiness, embrace it for what it is.  For what it is, is all that it is.  In most cases, the scenario could be much worse so take a minute to find gratitude for it being no more than what it was. 

Too many of us allow “negative” things to stress us out or control how we feel, but it is important to remember that you are the one who has control over how you feel.  Whatever the situation is, deal with it and move on.  There is no need to harbor negative energy in regards to it.  There is also no reason to stop being happy or feeling good.  Just because something “bad” happens to you does not mean you have to change who you truly are.

The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama

Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Stress Free Living by Elisabeth Wilson

Being able to accept life’s unexpected hiccups with a positive attitude will bring you power.  You will be able to go on with life without allowing it to “take you down”.  So many people get caught up in these little hiccups that before they know it, their lives are spinning out of control like a tornado!  Allowing yourself to get upset or distraught is not going to change what happened so why waste all your good energy?  Instead, do what you have to do, go on with life and above all else, just be happy!

Love & Light,

Letting Go of Emotional Pain

03The mind creates emotional pain through the thoughts it thinks.  These thoughts come from your resistance to “what is”.  The more intense your pain, the more you are resisting the present moment.  Never will you find emotional pain in the present moment.  In reality the pain you are suffering is just an illusion created by the mind.  However, because many of us allow our minds to control our emotions we live with this unnecessary pain.  This is the same as living outside your-self; outside the present moment.

You are and will always be the present moment, but you may not always be in tune with it.  The present moment is where your connection to your inner-being and to the Universe is.  It is where your power lies; the power to create a joyful life experience.  We are all One with the Universe.

When you go against life, resisting what is, you are living in the past or future.  Your mind is feeding off experiences that do not exist.  Let’s say for example your relationship ends.  The only way you are going to feel emotional pain from this experience is from thinking thoughts related to your now PAST relationship.  Essentially, you are going against what is.  You are going against what your life is right NOW.  You are not accepting your life as it is in this moment.  This of course creates the negative emotions you feel which in turn creates the pain.  Of course you may feel “sorrow” for this loss but it does not have to control your life.

Peace is Every Step by Thich Nhat Hahn

The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Inner Peace by the Dalai Lama

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

Living in the present moment means to be in control of your mind.  Pay attention to what you are thinking and where those thoughts take you.  Look out for triggers that may send you leaping into the past or future.  The moment a negative emotion arises you know your mind is trying to take you out of the Now.  The easiest way to re-focus is to become aware of where you are right now.  Pull yourself back into your body so to speak, leaving the mind behind.  The more you empty your mind, the more peace, joy, well-being and love will become your experience.

Water Red HeartLetting go of what was or what could be for what is will free you completely.  It allows you to stay focused in the present moment releasing you from the bonds of any moment that is not this moment.  This in itself will relieve your emotional pain.

Love & Light,

Cindy
